Taleworlds Entertainment's medieval role-playing game Mount & Blade: Warband is making the move from Windows PC to Android devices with Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor, the developer announced.
The studio has ported the original PC title to the mobile platform rather than simply creating a minimized remake for handheld devices. As a result, the mobile game includes full character customization, up to 64-player multiplayer and numerous combat weapons.
Mount & Blade: Warband is currently available for $6.99 as part of a lower launch price. The game will normally be available for $9.99.
Mount & Blade series developer TaleWorlds Entertainment assumed responsibility for the games from publisher Paradox Interactive last month. The series began in 2008 when the Turkish developer released Mount & Blade, an action role-playing game for Windows PC. A sequel, Mount & Blade: Warband, was released in 2010, and a standalone expansion, Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, came out in 2011.
TaleWorlds announced another entry, Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, in September 2012. For more on the upcoming game, you can watch its announcement trailer and browse a gallery of screenshots from its alpha.
